    So entertaining!

    What an entertaining group of friends! I loved the main couple but I loved the group of friends just as much. The fact that they all decided to join a dating app so that they would have a plus one for a work event was pretty comical. Sometimes I struggle with a friends to lovers story because you gotta get that transition just right to be believable. I admit, at first I thought things were just a little too easy, but the more we learn about Millie and Reid the more believable these two were. This is the third book I've read from this writing duo and after finishing this book, it made me think about why I've loved all three so much. I realize they have been like a sneak attack. They start out light, funny and very entertaining. Then as the story progresses, I start to see a subtle shift to a more serious side that just pulls me right in. It surprises me to get that serious look into these light and funny characters and I love when a book surprises me. This was a fun story and I can't wait to see what these authors bring next.

    Entertaining and sweet

    Relatable characters, good storyline and even laughed out loud a couple times. Read it in a couple days on vacay. Definitely worth a read.

    Hilarious take on the online dating scene

    My Favorite Half-Night Stand, written by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, who is better known as Christina Lauren, is a friends to lovers romantic comedy that has a hilarious take on the online dating scene. This is the first book by this author that I have read, and I was unable to put it down…read it in a day and a half. Millie is a well-respected college professor, her field of study is female serial killers so she smart, right? Well, she may be book smart, but not so bright in her personal life. She experienced a major tragedy during her childhood which has resulted in her being emotionally stunted, not letting friends get to know the real Millie. Although Millie is flawed and did some unacceptable things I did like her, for me, it just made her character authentic. Her four best friends, all guys, Reid, Ed, Alex and Chris, are also professors at the same university. They are all cute somewhat geeky guys. I really love the relationship that they all share and felt that they all really care about one another. Reid and Millie share a special bond, best friends absolutely, and then there was that little misstep of that half night-stand. I definitely agree with Millie, Reid is both brilliant and beautiful. The group needs to find dates for at the university’s formal event, with no prospects they turn to an online dating site. That's when things get interesting. Profiles are written, with some get more attention than others and some getting unwanted attention, which had me cracking up. Millie and Reid get tangled up in the online dating scene which creates some fascinating complexities in their friendship. There is so much more I could write about that, but I wouldn't want to ruin the fun of the read. I loved the whole storyline of this book. These authors did a super job of inserting pop culture references throughout this well written well thought out book. Character development was expertly done, the characters growing and maturing throughout the book. Written from a dual point of view, which happens to be my favorite, the authors uniquely give the reader a glimpse of the innermost thoughts of these two very complex characters. In conclusion, My Favorite Half-Night Stand was a fun, sexy read with the perfect amount of angsts. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. ***I kindly received an ARC of this book by way of NetGalley/publisher/author. I was not contacted, asked or required to leave a review to read this book. I received no compensation, financial or otherwise. This review is my honest opinion .***

    This book made me happy!

    Reid and Millie have been best friends for years along with three other nerds. They are all rather clueless when it comes to dating. When an important event is on the horizon that will require them to each have a plus one, as a group they decide to try a dating app. However, one half night with Reid, a poorly written profile, and a bit of jealousy, pushes Millie into making a decision that may very well cause the downfall of the closest relationships she’s ever had. I love a story that entails emails or texts. Add in a bit of secrecy over who the other person sending the messages is and I’m totally invested. This was filled with so much goodness. Lots of humor between the characters along with a bit of angst and I was a happy reader. Millie was closed off and unable to share the things that really mattered. As she realizes she wants Reid in her life in a different way, she also learns she’s going to have to make some changes that will require quite a bit of work on her part. She was fun and witty and knew just how to handle her group of friends but lost when it came time to open up to them. Reid was smart and dedicated to his job. He didn’t initially desire Millie but when the opportunity to spend the night with her presented itself he took it. He never chased Millie, which was kind of a disappointment to me, but followed her lead. He was definitely a beta hero but I liked him all the same. The conclusion to this story was perfect for the situation and I loved seeing how Millie faced her issues and dealt with them. This is a fast paced read with a cast of characters that were so much fun. The steam level isn’t really high, in my opinion. The chemistry here seemed to be a bit lacking but the relationship struggle and the hilarity of the group more than made up for it.

    Amusing, smart, and adorably romantic!

    My Favorite Half-Night Stand is an engaging, witty, friends-to-more romance that features the spunky, intelligent Millie whose finding it harder and harder to keep her attraction for her best friend a secret, and the charming and honest Reid who may finally realize everything he’s ever wanted or needed is standing right in front of him. The writing is whimsical and crisp and uses a delightful mix of text messages, group chats, snappy dialogue, and first-person narration from dual points of view. The characterization is spot on with an incredible cast of characters who are quirky, charismatic, and genuine. And the plot is an irresistible blend of shameless flirting, friendship, family, light drama, tricky situations, spirited shenanigans, awkward moments, steamy romance, and the hilarious ups and downs of online dating. I’ve always been a fan of Christina Lauren novels, and My Favorite Half-Night Stand has just become my new favourite. It’s outrageously funny, deliciously swoon-worthy and without a doubt one of the best rom-coms I’ve had the pleasure to read this year.
